Happy New Year from LifeLine Animal Project!  If your New Year’s resolution includes volunteering more this year, and if you’re interested in helping dogs and cats who are stuck out in the cold, then we have a great opportunity for you! 

LifeLine will be holding a Volunteer Outreach Day this Saturday, January 11th, from noon to 4 p.m., at our shelter, 129 Lake St, Avondale Estates, GA 30002, where we’ll be building dog houses (both prefab and from scratch) for community outreach, and cat houses for feral caretakers.

If you can’t make our outreach day, there’s another way you can help.  With the weather so cold, LifeLine has been working hard to get pets better shelter, fixed, inside, and kept out of county shelters. With free food, free spay/neuter vouchers, dog houses and folding crates we're doing just that, but we need more items.  Please consider donating dog food (any brand, any size), used dog houses or bales of wheat straw to pack dog houses, so we can help pets while starting the transition conversation with owners.  All items can be dropped off at 129 Lake St, Avondale Estates, GA 30002, and will help save the lives of pets in DeKalb and Fulton counties!
